Hey Mr. DeNiro, sorry if my misplaced post of 26th August started up this shit again for you. I was out of order, for which I apologise again.

Just for the craic, here are 'those shorts' in action again. They certainly do get around:

No apologies necessary Jackie.

Wow, those shorts look even worse than they do on Bob. I wasn't around at the time, so it's extra difficult for me to imagine that style of shorts ever being considered fashionable. I guess nobody ever told Bob they went out of style, and if he didn't get too pudgy around the midsection, I suspect he would still wear them today. I recall him stating in an interview a few years ago that he doesn't wear his old shorts because they don't fit anymore.

I don't think fashion even came into it; it's not like they were ever in style that much to begin with ;0)

Hey, Worksopman's Dead!

Well thereabouts anyway...

How's it going, JH?

OK thanks Rob. I'm surviving, despite the re-emergence of quasi-Thatcherism (that's what it feels like anyway).

And you ?

Getting by, Jackie, just getting by. I don't know what things are like in your line of work but it's been pretty bloody dodgy in mine recently. I somehow seem to keep finding one more lifeline to grab on to before I go under, but really all I want to do is get out of this fucking cold water and go lie on the beach. Not going to happen though. Just endless flailing about until the water finally closes over my head.

Wow. I'm Mr Cheery tonight, eh?
:-)

When I feel that way, I break out Workingmans Dead (Worksop indeed!), some JGB or even some Elliott Smith.

It usually helps.
Funny how troubled souls like Jerry or Elliott could have the effect of making people feel much happier about things.
